A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

The Senator from Disney: Sen. Fritz Hollings ($-Disney) and his proposed law, the Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act, would require devices that can record or playback digital media to carry government-mandated copy-protection technology to thwart piracy.

Princeton University's Edward Felton is compiling "Fritz's Hit List" -- a series of devices that would be affected by the new bill.

The list includes: Big Mouth Billy Bass -- the hokey singing fish novelty item -- a digital baby monitor, a digital answering machine and a slew of other devices.

Fritz's law turns out to not only be stupid, but silly as well.
